Gucci is pleased to introduce the Stirrup bag, a new classic that revisits the past with a modern edge, while perfectly complementing Creative Director Frida Giannini’s seductive and glamorous collections.
Inspired by an iconic model from 1975, the Stirrup bag is a rigid frame style that boasts an intricate construction and unparalleled workmanship that reflects Gucci’s core values and longstanding expertise. From cutting the various components to the final polish, it takes a seasoned artisan almost two days to craft a Stirrup bag.
All the edges are hand sanded, brushed, painted and polished. The interiors are just as precious, lined with either a tone-on-tone nappa or a cotton and linen blend. The rich color palette is awash with spicy tones such as light brown, red and curry brown.
The precious skins are the result of traditional manual techniques, put into practice by Gucci’s master artisans to further enhance the plush textures. The crocodile proves extremely soft and natural thanks to the application of special oils, while the aged yet shiny look of the python is the outcome of a multi-ironing process and other manual treatments.
